Paint side wall darker and make room appear longer.
Not very common in homes, but in bigger buildings you must have walked through long Corridors or Passage. May be in college or some public place a very long corridor that takes you far away in building. This is Corridor effect. This is the design room we are going to understand today.
This is another Design Room to trick your brain. If you have a room which is not very deep, doesn’t have much length, you can stimulate Corridor effect. Paint side walls dark. This will take center wall far away from your eyes. You know wall has not moved but it creates a feeling that it has gone away from you. This will allow your room to appear with more depth. This is exactly opposite of making center wall dark, and bringing ti close to your eyes.
Strong colors on side walls, makes room thinner and makes it appear longer. It gives corridor effect.
